Call for Nominations:
The Surveillance Studies Network (SSN) invites nominations (including self-nominations) for the annual Surveillance Studies Book Award.
The award is given in recognition of an outstanding monograph on surveillance published during the preceding year. We are currently inviting nominations for 2019 (*books with a ‘2018’ copyright date). Single or multi-authored works are eligible, but not edited volumes.
The winner/s will be announced in late 2019 and will be honored at the 2020 SSN conference. The winner will receive an award amount of £100 (to be split among authors if there is more than one), as well as a 1-year membership for the Surveillance Studies Network (SSN), which provides benefits including discounts on all SSN-sponsored conferences and events.
The deadline for nominations and the receipt of four (4) books from the publisher is the 2nd of July 2019. Please note, books will not be returned.
